Nature is opportunistic in its creative way such as where a species can somehow perceive a means of survival it will adapt itself to go there. I guess what helped to inspire this thought was my experience some time ago with bedbugs.. if there was a god why would he allow bedbugs to torture his innocent creatures? Well not only bedbugs but all the bugs that cause disease, suffering and death and yet not only that but the animals that feed off other animals like a lion ripping up a zebra while it is still alive and stuff like that.. Nature is mindlessly opportunistic in its creative way.. people will say 'look at the beauty of nature, how can you say there is no god?'.. Well take a look at how nature's pine beetle has ravaged the forests here in British Columbia. Its a dog eat dog world, ya know. Point being that if there was a god I don't think it would be that way.

I'd add The Selfish Gene and Unweaving The Rainbow as well.
